Marietta High School is a pretty good school, and a lot of emphasis is placed on education (as it should be). All students have a fair chance to challenge themselves, reach their potential and get college ready.
This school has its ups and downs. The new tardy policy at this school is ridiculous! If a your child gets 4 tardies your child is in detention missing class. And the list goes on..This means waking up late is a problem. It's good they care about attendance but that's taking it too far...You can't control people wanting to care about school. Not all students having 10 tardies are bad kids, I have a 3.5. Stop putting so much pressure. plus some teachers are bad and classes are zoos. I had a teacher teaching out a book, late grading, giving zeros when absent ( no e's in grade book) ,giving packets, giving homework that didn't cover today's lesson ( some get even frustrated when asking questions).DONT BE FOOLED BY saying they are an ib school. Even some admistraters pick on troublesome kids thinking they are in gangs, have drugs in folders & etc. Some classes are zoos. It seems to me that some teacher don't know how to discipline kids, let kids argue and bully others. This school does have an old Marietta problem as described in comments. I wish some students weren't so clickish and adults weren't so rude at times( but is it like that in other schools)The upsides is they have a 8 class schedule, tutoring after school , strong school spirt, success center and a ib program. School used to better but please don't make it prison.
The Marietta area is just getting better. This school is great. My kid loves it and the area is perfect.
I hate this school. EVERY clique is insufferable, from the emos to the old mariettas. It is very hard to find someone who acts like a decent human being. The teachers and faculty are especially awful, only caring about the legacies. It's a terrible town in general.
